This Call deals with R&D and innovation towards establishing disaster-resilient societies, fighting against crime and terrorism, and improving border and external security.

When a topic has eligibility and admissibility conditions which require the active involvement of specific entities (e.g.: ‘3 Law Enforcement Agencies (LEA) from at least 3 different EU or Associated countries’), this means that these entities have to be participants and should be directly involved in the carrying out of the tasks foreseen in the grant. When a reference is made to “practitioners”, the text refers to someone who is qualified or registered to practice a particular occupation, profession in the field of security or civil protection. Applicants should identify clearly which members of the consortium they consider “practitioners” in the specific context of their proposal, and to include a clear description of their respective role and added-value as practitioners in section 4.3 of proposal part B4-6.

Whereas activities will have an exclusive focus on civil applications, coordination with the activities of the European Defence Agency (EDA) may be considered with possible synergies being established with projects funded by the EDA programmes. The complementarity of such synergies should be described comprehensively. On-going cooperation should be taken into account. Only an explicit and firm commitment from EDA-funded projects to contribute to a project may positively impact the evaluation of a proposal submitted under this work programme part.

In this Call, “standards” and “standardisation” are used in a broad sense, except where they are specifically referred to as “European standards” or “European standardisation”.

All topics in this work programme part will be subject to security scrutiny.
